About

Sandy Gaskett or "Gasbombgirl" is based in Perth, Western Australia. Her love of the ocean inspires her vibrant energetic pieces, created using her favourite mediums acrylic and/or oil paints.

Her love of creating her colourful art pieces begun in earnest around 2006, and her trademark style is easily recognisable to all that know her. A self taught artist, with many an art course under her belt, and artworks all over the world, Sandy's work has been called explosive as her fun Gasbombgirl art name implies.

Many of her pieces focus on a childhood life of sun,and surf in and around the Western Australian coast line. Sandy's special attention to the dynamic colours in her artworks are easily identifiably that of the pristine Indian Ocean.

Influences

With a childhood full of family trips to the small seaside town of Lancelin in Western Australia, I’ve always had an affinity with the ocean. This naturally spills over into my artworks, where I will combine the happiest of colours, in an assortment of patterned designs. Many of my pieces are reflective of nature, and the West Australian coastline.
